Lever drag performance in a spin reel the 'game' has changed forever! Big game fish have a knack of handing inferior reels back in pieces, so Shimano has made every effort to ensure that the new Stella SWB series are as tough, functional and battle-ready as can be. The bigger the fish, the faster it swims, the higher it jumps, the more the Stellas like it. And no more does 'strength' have to equate to 'weight'.

Consequently, we have the use of High Rigidity Aluminium in the body, which won't twist or warp, and keeps features like X-Ship, which through its precision-cut gears and increased bearing support increases cranking power. An incredible 14 SA-RB bearings, a more rigid aluminium handle, and a one-piece aluminium shaft with stainless steel core help immeasurably in this regard and provide more power under load. When you have a massive dogtooth, southern bluefin tuna, giant trevally or blue marlin hooked up and disappearing over the horizon or aiming for the bottom of the ocean, the X-Tough Drag, with increased washer size and Coil Wave Spring continues to deliver drag consistency at every setting and for the full duration of the fight. The most extreme fishing conditions and situations are where Stella SWBs demonstrate their thoroughbred lines.

X-Shield and X-Protect gasket and rubber seals keep saltwater intrusion at bay, no matter how badly you the angler might be getting slammed! Casting heavy and high resistance lures like metal jigs, stick baits and poppers long distances with accuracy and efficiency has never been easier, thanks to a combination of X-Rigid rotor, SR one-piece titanium bail arm wire, as well as a SW Diamond Like Carbon bail roller to cut down heat build-up. The only reason why there are no better spin reels than the Stella SWBs is that Shimano hasn't invented them yet!
